    Still I think you said if you check Edition it says Enterprise. Is that correct?

    Hi Ken,
    I ran a prog that extracted my current keys etc and it said:

    Windows 10 Enterprise
    Product Part No.: [TH]X19-9
    Installed from 'Full Packaged Product' media.

    Ahh thats nothing to worry about.
    The Legacy hardware is basically the old Master Boot Record style partition on the Hard Drive. Secure Boot is the newer GPT style partition Hard Drive giving you firmware secure boot keys and management keys to lock down your Motherboard bound to your Hard Drive.
    This means, no matter what, if anybody stole your Hard Drive in some serious dodgy way, it will never ever, in a month of Sundays work on another machine or motherboard, no matter what. So basically your data is safe, as long as you keep your network safe.
    True words when privacy is concerned. Dont tell anybody your personal details. That goes the same for your 400 motherboard and 300 graphics card, where people seem to happily tell the world what particular hardware theyre running. Been there, done that, not doing it again. Easy target for you know what.
    There is loads more just ask

    To see what is currently installed, press Window key + R. Type winver and press Enter.
    You'll get a window something like this:

    Pluginz, Can you please explain why? I have two drives (win 7 and win 10) and Secure Boot is disabled. Never had any issues.
    Fair comment and thank you as it should normally work as you say.
    I am just thinking of memory leaks as someone suggested earlier on and possible malware/adware or any other hidden nasty stuff which is eating away at the machine.

    A clean secure boot for me eliminates any un authenticated firmware (well it should) and gives you a clean start.

    Before changing Secure Boot, is your boot disk MBR or GPT

    Open disk management, right click on the Disk (very left Column, Disk 0 or Disk 1, whatever is boot), then click properties, then Volumes Tab, look for partition style.

    As well please provide a disk management shot. Want to see EFI Partition

    I'm sorry but Secure boot prevents unauthorized OS's from being boot. It is not required to boot Windows.

    Please follow ztruker advice on Windows version / edition.

    It's a Legacy-MBR drive.
    Where is the recovery partition?

    It also shows that OP never did a clean install.

    Looks that way. So please don't enable Secure boot.

    Tanya, when you did your clean install it appears you did not delete all existing partitions. Doing so means you get a real clean install.

    I would back data up and then follow our clean install tutorial. Step 13 talks to deleting existing partitions. Obviously if you delete all partitions your data has to be off machine.
